Double Mountain Outreach Services—
ASPERMONT—Double Mountain Outreach Services has supported local senior centers this year with funds to provide direct services to clients by providing prepared meals to senior citizens.
“We have all seen many struggles and extended needs this year due to the pandemic, and the need to support area aging community members struck us deeply,” reported Cherry Pittcock, Executive Director of Aspermont Small Business Development Center, Inc.
In supporting these and other needs, agency funds have been put to good use in a variety of areas.
Unfortunately, the agency has depleted its funds for this service year, and the fear is that they will not be able to provide to local senior centers for the remainder of the year. The month of October may be the final month to provide monetary support.
Agency employees are reaching out to raise funds to devote to this mission for the months of November and December, which are typically difficult months for elderly citizens living on fixed incomes. The agency hopes to find generous individuals and businesses who will support them in serving the aging population of the counties they serve.
If you or your business is interested in playing a role in ensuring that senior members of the rural counties of Haskell, Jones, Knox, Kent, Stonewall and Throckmorton are fed hot, nutritious prepared meals, please reach out to Double Mountain Outreach Services in Aspermont at 9660 US Hwy 83 S or call 940 989-3538.
